Lady Finger Mountain Peak in Hunza Valley Gilgit: A Majestic Gem in Gilgit, Pakistan

Lady Finger Mountain peak in Hunza Valley Gilgit also known as Bublimotin, Bubli Motin, or Bublimating is a unique rock spire in Batura Muztagh, just southwest of the Karakoram range in Pakistan.

The Lady Finger Mountain Peak in Hunza Valley Gilgit, Pakistan is famous for its unique shape. The shape of the peak looks like a beautiful finger of a lady when one sees the mountain from the distance.

Lady Finger Peak is located on the southwest edge of the Ultar Sar massif, southeast of the larger Batura Muztagh groups. The whole massif rises rapidly over the Hunza Valley to the southeast.

Lady Finger Mountain Height

Bublimotin is a sharp, ice-free rock, in the middle of nearby peaks, though with a slight ridge above the saddle and nearby Hunza Peak. It offers an elevation of 6,000 meters (20,000 ft) (in the most sensitive alpine form) and has become a remarkable paragliding area.

Local History of Lady Finger Mountain

A fascinating legend about the peak (Bubli mo Ting literally means’ Bubli peak) is that Kisar, the (magical) prince of Baltistan, came to Hunza on one of his adventures and married a princess, named Bubli.

When he received news that his first wife in Baltistan, Langabrumo, had been abducted (phut or deu, another source says, but according to Lorimer’s letter the foreign king), he immediately made arrangements to travel and rescue her. He took Bubli to this mountain, (later named after him), and gave him a sack of grain and a hen or a chicken (a Qarqamuts). 

He must have asked when – and when – he would return, and he said to him: “Every year give the chicken one to eat. When the sack is empty, I will come back. Until then, stay here.” He left, and they said Bubli was still waiting.

The valley offers spectacular views of some of the most beautiful and spectacular mountains in the world, including Rakaposhi 7,788 feet high, Hunza Peak, and the famous 6,000-foot-tall Ladyfinger mountain which is very similar to the female finger.

The friendly locals and the amazing scenery of the surrounding mountains made my trip to the famous Altit tourist destination very memorable.
